Member Spotlight Rob Gibbons Partner BHSM LLP

Introduction to BHSM LLP

Our law firm was founded in 2012 as Baily Homan Smyth McVeigh by Brian Baily, Mark Homan, Giles G Smyth and Joe McVeigh. Today we are known as BHSM LLP and are a dynamic and ambitious team of 50 professionals comprised of partners, associate solicitors, solicitors, trainees and support professionals.

In 2023 we moved to our new, larger premises at 76 Baggot Street Lower, Dublin 2 but we nonetheless retain our bespoke offering of big firm expertise and wealth of experience offered through the more personal service of a mid-size firm.

We offer a full suite of legal services, and our valued client base receives an end-to-end service in respect of their legal requirements from our breadth of practice teams. We advise leading domestic and international entities in relation to their property, commercial, employment, banking, regulatory and dispute resolution needs.

BHSM’s legal team members are experts in their practice areas but are also responsive practitioners who prioritise the provision of a strategic, practical and solution focused service to our clients. BHSM upholds a carefully developed and well-deserved reputation as providers of a best-in-class service to our clients. We provide this expertise of service across a range of legal practice areas at competitive rates and with a personal and focused service. This is the calling card of our firm and we train our staff in these priorities from the very outset. The majority of our new work comes from referrals from past and current clients, and this is something of which we are extremely proud. We have been closely involved in high numbers of significant projects and cases on behalf of high-profile clients over the years.
